GRANT COUNTY, Wash. -
The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your help finding a kidnapping suspect and her 6-year-old victim.
Deputies say Shirley Jackson of Waterville, Washington, had been a non-custodial caregiver for most of 6-year-old Angel Jackson’s life. Deputies say on or about May 13, 2016, Angel’s guardian was awarded legal custody of Angel and Shirley fled with Angel. Her current whereabouts are unknown. Shirley has friends in Oklahoma, but the Sheriff’s Office says as of now, Shirley and Angel have not been found.
Deputies say Shirley and Angel share the same last name, but are not related.
“Because of Shirley’s history as a convicted felon, Grant County Deputies, and U.S. Marshals are concerned for Angel’s safety,” a release by the Sheriff’s Office said. “Shirley also has a history of three complaints investigated by Child Protective Services which resulted in confirmed findings. None of those complaints, however, involved Angel.”
A warrant for first-degree kidnapping has been issued for Shirley Jackson’ arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at 509-762-1160, or send information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reference case number 16GS06868. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
